Society & Culture
We begin our episode with the journey of Anthony Haynes, from a normal childhood in Carson, to running away from home. Eventually he finds himself living on Skid Row, later finding housing and beginning a career as a peer advocate at Skid Row Housing Trust, helping orient the newly housed.
Next, Molly and Larae interview Chris Ko, Managing Director, Homelessness & Strategic Initiatives at United Way of Greater Los Angeles, to learn what is currently being done to ameliorate LA's housing crisis.
Finally, we close with Larae's poem, "Mourning of Tears."
